I paid $500 for the 4 book "Collectors Workshop Set of Goldston's Locked Books" in mint condition.
All four are bound in maroon leather with gold foil stamping on the fronts and spines. As with the originals, three of the books have hasps and locks.The set includes :
*4 BK Collector's Set - #53 out of 250* printed in 1991'
1) Great Magician's Tricks by Will Goldston (HB)
2) Exclusive Magical Secrets by Will Goldston (w/Hasp, Lock, & Key) (HB)
3) More Exclusive Magical Secrets by Will Goldston (w/Hasp, Lock, & Key) (HB)
4) Further Exclusive Magical Secrets by Will Goldston (w/Hasp, Lock, & Key) (HB)
I made a small glass display case for them. At $125 per book, when divided, I still think it was a bargain
as well as a good investment. Not to mention the great conversions surrounding the comparison
to the locked magic book in the Harry Potter movie.

Hi Guys,

So I was able to grab a deluxe Collectors edition of Apocalypse. What are your thoughts.

Are you enjoying reading them?

If so, you got a good deal.

Thanks Tim. Turns out I've become a magic book collector. Always looking for good magic within the pages of a book.

$350 for Roy Benson by Starlight.

And, it's WORTH IT!

Not a single book, but spent quite a lot on the 4 book deluxe set of the Vernon Chronicles. I am really enjoying going through them. Still on vol 1, so much more to go.

$600 for "Mahatma" (leather bound set) from Kaufman and Greenburg. The set was limited to 350 cloth bound, and only 50 leather bound, I believe. I'm not sure it's the most expensive I've purchased, but it's certainly up there with the priciest ones I've collected.
